The hotel is located steps from the Orno and Ponte Vecchio, but it is a bit dated and austere. There's a long list of restrictions in the room, no 24-hour desk service, no air conditioning and only a single towel per guest. Because there is no AC, you have to leave the windows open which gets noisy and invites Florence's robust mosquito colony into your suite.
The only real saving grace is the owners, Alessio and Asumi. They are very friendly and can help you out with restaurant recommendations, directions and tour tips.
